Nkulumane rapper Oxzy understands the social responsibility that artistes have and as such, the $ for 2 singer has taken it upon himself to improve the welfare of the needy. Oxzy (real name Othiniel Mpofu) and other youths have embarked on a project to assist inmates at Qinisani Day Care Orphanage who need among other things clothes and blankets.

The youths last June embarked on a door-to-door collection of clothes, blankets and cash for the orphanage. The week-long initiative resulted in the youths collecting 12 bags of clothes, blankets and US$100. On the day they handed over the donation, Oxzy and his group took the opportunity to celebrate with the children as they roasted meat and bought drinks.
